Whether they’re required for downstream manufacturing steps or for error-free functioning, surface characteristics are decisive with regard to part and product quality. Processes such as deburring and precision surface finishing are becoming more and more significant as a result – regardless of whether the parts are produced by means of erosion, forming, primary forming or additive manufacturing. DeburringEXPO, the world’s only trade fair which deals exclusively with the removal of burrs and the production of precision surface finishes, will be held at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 8th through the 10th of October, 2019. Beyond this, the supplementary program including theme parks covering the issues of the “Sheet Metal Deburring Process Sequence”, “AM Parts Finishing” and “Cleaning After Deburring”, as well as the bilingual expert forum, will offer specialised knowledge and know-how that’s unavailable anywhere else in such a compact form.
